Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu Synopsis

When a certain man is released from prison, he knows exactly where he is heading first. After falling in love with a traditional comic storyteller’s rendition of the story called “Shinigami,” he’s determined to become apprentice. The performer, Yakumo, has never taken an apprentice before, but to everyone’s astonish, he accepts the eager ex-prisoner, nicknaming him “Yotaro.”

As Yotaro happily starts his new life, he meets others in Yakumo’s life, including Yakumo’s ward Konatsu. Konatsu was the daughter of a popular storyteller, and Yakumo took her in after her father’s tragic death. Konatsu loved her father’s storytelling, and would love to become a performer in her own right – but that route isn’t intended for women.
